I bought one of these wireless BT helmet communicators, followed the poor installation directions (contradictory as to where the speakers/microphone) should be installed, and took it for one ride. Even when standing still the sound quality coming from my iPod was muffled and below average. I used the largest ear buds but they kept falling out of my ear. Perhaps there is noise cancellation on the microphone when talking on the phone but the audio quality for the rider is absolutely horrible with the slightest head or side wind. After the first ride I prefer to use my wired ear buds as they fit my ears much better, sound great and have no issues with the wind, not to mention they cost over $200 less. These may be the best BT wireless headsets for a bike helmet in the market but in my humble opinion not good enough. Yes it has hands free phone options and you can communicate with another rider that rides right next to you (if they are paired with you ahead of time). Let us get real, If you can not listen to music with it how can you carry a decent phone conversation? Also, given the short range for the peer to peer connection it is easier to just talk to each other. I think it is time for someone to design a quality wireless device for bicycle riders but I suppose we will have to wait for Apple to do that as well. The one I bought is going back today.

I've had this headset since February 2013. I use it at least twice daily, and sometimes more than that. I bike to commute to work (about 3 miles on a hybrid commuter) and I also do endurance road riding (50 miles or more per ride, averaging 16-18 MPH pace, on a full carbon road bike). For listening to music or podcasts, it works pretty well. At full volume with my smartphone paired, I can usually hear podcasts just fine at speeds around 20 MPH or below. Above 20 MPH, the wind noise blocks podcasts, although I can still usually hear music. But for talking on the phone, or giving voice commands to my phone (even simple ones like "Read it" or "Ignore"), I have to be riding slower than 12 MPH, and sometimes I have to come to a dead stop. I've tried repositioning the microphones, but I've yet to experience the advertised noise cancellation.

If you are looking for a helmet-mounted set of headphones, these work well. If you want a communication device for your bike, keep looking.

I am an avid road biker, but the headphones I had been using for years broke near the end of last season. After researching for a long time, it appears that there is no great option for road biking headphones. This appeared as about the best option. The price tag didn't thrill me, but after reading a few reviews, I thought it might be worth trying out.

In general, the setup of this system looks great, but it doesn't translate into the $150 price tag. The main complaint is sound quality. I've never been a huge fan of ear buds due to the comfort level, but I was willing to take a risk on this due to it being specialized for what I was looking. After getting these, I tested them out for a short time, and the comfort level is lower and sound quality even worse than the pair of ear buds that came with my phone. It is a very unique design, as there does not appear to be a speaker directly in the ear bud, but instead it appears that the sound is produced in the units that attach to your helmet, and then literally piped via a rubber tube to the ear bud itself. I'm not sure if this has a huge impact on sound quality or not.

Perhaps, if you generally like the sound quality of ear buds, it might be acceptable, but these are definitely not a good option for the choosy audiophile who also is an avid biker.

I have had the hbc 100 for almost 2 years now with mounting options for both my moto helmet and my bike helmet. The unit is amazing, so I was bummed when I started having issues and almost did not call there tech support line due to figuring I would waste my time talking to someone in a third-world country asking redundant questions like if I had the headset plugged in. To my surprise I chatted with an American and after one brief session was told that they would swap my unit for a new one. What more can I say the price is right, the unit works as stated, they stand behind there stuff and you get to talk to Americans!!
